Link Party Time! - Times Are Tough Thursday #4

Welcome to another Times are Tough Thursday Link Party. Last Thursday we had over 700 items posted. Pretty crazy, but I am not complaining. It was wonderful to have so much traffic and activity going on.

Bunches of you are reporting sales in your stores and traffic in your blogs. That's what it's all about. More links, more traffic, more hearts, more followers, more sales. Last week, all of you really worked together to make it a spectacular event, and for many of you it really paid off. Thank you to everyone that "payed it forward" to make last weeks party a success.

This Week's Party Rules...
1.) ***You must be a follower of this blog to participate***
2.) Everyone is welcome to participate, including sellers and non-sellers. For the most part, anything handmade by you may be posted.
3.) I am continuing to allow you to post up to 5 items this week. Feel free to post your best 5.
4.) Important....This party...the traffic it brings.....the links it makes....the followers, the hearts, and the sales,...depends almost entirely on how well you all work together, and "pay it forward". I have taken the first step and hosted a party where everyone can get some Free advertising. Now it is your turn to pay it forward. Spread the word about the party, grab a button, write a feature post, start a thread, invite a few friends, whatever you want. It's all good. Just promote the party a little.
5.) Even more important...Please visit each others stores and enter the giveaways. I cannot stress enough the importance of getting out there and visiting as many sites as you can. Leave some comments and give out some hearts. I guarantee your efforts will be rewarded, if you get out there and make some friends.
Here is a button if you want to link up that way...

Okay...In case this is your first party, I am posting the instructions again for entering your items.
No worries. Really easy.
1.) Scroll down past all the thumbnail pics that were entered before you. Find the little blue button that says ..." Add your link " . It has a little frog face. Click on it.
2.) Copy and paste the URL of the item you want to bring to the party. For bloggers it will probably be the post URL.
3.) " Name" ... This is not for your name. It is for the name and description of your item. You can use up to 50 characters and can even include the price if you want.
4.) Enter your email address. It will not be visible by the public.
5.) Click " Next " and pick out your picture.
That's all there is to it!
Good Luck!
